October is upon us and that means Oktoberfest is close behind. This yearâs annual Oktoberfest of the Palm Beaches (now in its 42nd year) runs over two weekends, including the Fridays before: October 9-11 and 16-18. So put on your leiderhosen and come hungry because this is one of the countryâs largest and most entertaining Oktoberfest celebrations.
You can expect to find Bavarian favorites like bratwurst, schnitzel and goulash, with all sorts of accompaniments, including sauerkraut, salty pretzels and giant pickles. Of course, nothing goes better with these traditional dishes than German beer, and there will be plenty of choices such as original HofbrÃ¤u Oktoberfest, HofbrÃ¤u Dunkel and HofbrÃ¤u Weizen.
The entertainment will be just as distinct and varied. After the traditional parade of flags, you can expect to see folk dancing, choral singing, sing-alongs and several German bands.
Sound like fun? Then head for the American German Club pavilion one weekend this October. 5111 Lantana Road. To purchase tickets or for more information, including the exact hours of the events, go to www.americangermanclub.org
